I’m slowly beginning to think that the Bruins have good goaltending. 

Now, now – don’t write off this absurd notion just yet. Hear me out.



 The Bruins ended the red-hot Flyers' seven-game win streak in convincing fashion Saturday, chasing goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov and leaving Wells Fargo Center with a 6-0 victory.

Tim Thomas' 30th career shutout and a Gordie Howe hat trick from Zdeno Chara led the B's, who have now won four games in a row. 

The Bruins announced Friday that they have sent forward Jordan Caron and defenseman Steven Kampfer to Providence.

Much like when they were sent down on the first of the month, the move allows the two players who are usually the team's healthy scratches to get some game action. The two will play for Providence on Saturday and Sunday. 

The fact that the B's sent Kampfer down suggests captain Zdeno Chara, who has missed the last two games with a leg injury, will be ready to play Saturday against the Flyers in Philadelphia. 

An NBC spokesperson told Richard Deitsch of SI.com that former Bruins player and current NHL analyst Mike Milbury will not appear on the network while addressing allegations that he assaulted a 12-year-old hockey player who was in a fight with his son during a game in Brookline last week.

Former Bruins player and coach and current television analyst Mike Milbury was charged with assault and battery on a child, threats to commit a crime and disorderly conduct after an incident at a youth hockey game last week in Brookline, according to multiple reports.

Bruins forward Adam McQuaid was fined $2,500 by the NHL Thursday for kneeing Senators forward Nick Foligno. He was not suspended. 

McQuaid extended his left leg and kneed Senators forward Nick Foligno late in the second period in the Bruins' 5-2 win over the Senators. He was given a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct. 

The Bruins' defenseman has not been suspended in his three years in the NHL.

Pardon the baseball lingo in a hockey column, but Adam McQuaid just threw Brendan Shanahan a fastball right down the middle. Shanahan can knock it out of the park, and that might knock the defenseman out of a game or two.

In other words, McQuaid is probably going to be suspended. 



The Bruins picked up their third straight win Wednesday, defeating the Senators, 5-2, on a two-goal night from Daniel Paille.

Rich Peverley got the B's on the board in the first period, but Daniel Alfredsson tied the game 4:23 into the second period. Patrice Bergeron and Paille scored breakaway goals in a 56-second span in the third period, and Jason Spezza made it a 4-2 game when he beat Tim Thomas stick-side for his 10th goal of the season. Paille added his second of the game with just over a minute remaining, beating Craig Anderson with a bomb over the netminder's glove.

If you want proof that history repeats itself, watch the guy wearing No. 63 for the Bruins. 



Responding to a call from his coach to be a "good brat," not a "bad brat," Brad Marchand scored twice off faceoff wins from Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask stopped all 41 shots, as the Bruins won their first game without captain Zdeno Chara, 3-0, over the Kings Tuesday night at TD Garden. It was Rask's ninth career shutout and first this season. He was outstanding in the third, stopping 20 shots, three more than he had to save in his last shutout last March 1 at Ottawa.
